Some lovely old linens arrived today from mantofev and after I got everything out of the way, I did one of my favourite things: I made hearts. It makes me happy to make them! [These have just been listed in my Etsy heart shop]

A coeur ouvert


  1. Happy hearts indeed...

  2. gorgeous blue petals

  3. your little book looks very interesting, and as always, love you sweet romantic hearts.

    THANK YOU Colette for the great idea about the cardboard!! I gasped when I read it...and first thing the next morning I dug out my cardboard stash and proceeded to hose it down outside.
    I got lots and lots of awesomely neat paper for many many projects! WOW! totally free art paper!
    I do lots of little watercolors, etc. as gifts and this new discovery is SO exciting! I cut enough yesterday to do 2 altered art journals. I can't wait to get going on the pages! THANK you again for the terrrrrific idea!
    BTW: I am in love with all your gorgeous and create hearts!
    Enjoy your day!

  5. These are really beautiful, Colette. I need to make some sachets for a Silver Bella swap and I am just dreading it because I am not much of a seamstress and want them to be so nice. Simple is so lovely...can I borrow your artistic eye ;-)


  6. The hearts are lovely Colette. Always so many wonderful things to see here. I love the way you use recycled items. I was in an antique shop today and looking at some vintage red and brown striped ticking and it reminded me of your work. I could just see it made into hearts. I love the children's "den" too. Very hobbitty.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate each and every one of you.
